The elastic in the shoes on offer looks fine to me. Old, worn-out elastic crinkles round the edges like a cabbage leaf. It can't be easily replaced, as you cannot put the shoe under a sewing machine. You might have to wait until the entire shoe gets dismantled for a resoling.I wonder if the elastic is still any good (although I'm sure a decent cobbler could replace, as could Cleverley of course).

Reminds me of men who wear braces with a belt. Rather dorkey. Just add a propeller cap, plastic pocket protector, and a calculator to convert the weight of cloth from ounces into grams and you're good to go.
